    Simple Science of Calories in V Calories out RESTART .... 1 lb gone ....62 lb to go!!

    *RESTARTED ON 22ND MARCH 2015*

    Hi Everyone

    I am no stranger to this site and just about every forum or diet on it as I have been a member for many years and tried every diet I can think of. But I'm sure I'm not alone in that

    Ending 2014 weighing more than I started it was not nice to realise, especially as in the summer of 2014 I was much less and so I have lost my way and had a gain in recent months. However that said, I am VERY determined to reach my goal THIS YEAR!! This is it, no more messing about, no more losing my way, no more 'diet hopping'......I am going to stick to the simple science of calories in V calories out.....it really is that simple!! This is the plan that i lost most of my previous weight with so I know it works, I just have to make sure I stick to it

    I am armed with my new gadget ....A Fit Bit For those of you who are not familiar with this, its an activity monitor that tracks my activity, as well as my calories in, calories out, steps taken, stairs climbed, hours sleeping and if its quality sleep or restless sleep (very interesting results for me! out of 9 hrs in bed, i only sleep 4-5 hrs) distance covered, it can map my walks and it tracks my fluid intake. So a pretty useful (and very accurate!) bit of kit

    Current Stats


    • Where I started : Start weight in 2009 - 258lb = size 24/26 clothes
    • Where I am : Current weight Jan 2015 - 213lb = size 18 clothes
    • Where I am going: Goal weight - 147lb - size 10/12 clothes



    The Plan

    I will start with 1500 calories a day made up of good healthy foods, low fat, high protein with good carbs and split into 6 meals -


    • Breakfast - 350 cals - 9:00am
    • Snack 1 - 100 cals - 11am
    • Lunch- 350 cals - 1pm
    • Snack 2 - 100 cals - 3pm
    • Tea - 500 cals - 5pm
    • Snack 3 - 100 cals - 7pm



    Exercise - I will be staying as active as I can during the day, getting in my 10,000 steps will walks and will go swimming 2-3 times a week. Due to medical issues, I am quite limited on what exercise I can do at the moment but I 'll not be letting that hold me back, I will just do what I can

    Please come and follow me, support me and help me along the way and I promise I will be here to do exactly that for you too, you can never have too many diet buddies

    Hi Sarah, it looks as though we have a very similar amount of weight to loose and I too have just bought myself a Fitbit. Although I am still trying to get my head around it, it is very clear that I don't move enough during the week (I have a desk job). I also enjoy swimming and am trying to go twice a week. I have been 'trying' to loose weight since the beginning of the year and I'm not getting anywhere as I think I need something a bit more strict. I'm planning on giving calorie counting a go from the morning, hopefully we can help eachother out. I'm looking forward to seeing how you are getting on ?, Em x

    Thank you my lovelies

    Em, yes we have simular stats Id love to support and help you any way i can. Fitbit is perfect for getting a clear picture of how active we are over a 24hr basis, especially as it updates constantly so I can monitor what im doing so much more accurate. you will love your fitbit Its funny that you say you need something more strict as for me, being less strict has helped. I say less strict as in i am no longer putting pressure on myself, which in the past, I load myself with tons of pressure!! I now eat what I like and just eat everything in moderation, I dont feel deprived and its working Im excited to see my next weigh in as its been a while since I felt this confident on a plan. I also look forward to following your progress too, good luck and keep me posted xx

    Yes, I am certainly getting used to my Fitbit. The sleep is the most interesting as I get a lot but I was surprised to see how restless it was! I find strict keeps me on track as if I'm left to myself then I go all out lol. First fast today, going for black coffee and water all day with a normal dinner x

    Good Morning

    Well I am afraid things did not go to plan......I was very ill for a while and then I was admitted to hospital with a 10 week ruptured ectopic pregnancy with massive internal bleeding To say I was shocked is an understatment!! I am making a good recovering but not on any plan currently as I am not fully recovered, I have only been home from hospital 10 days and still struggling with mobility, sleep, pain etc, but Im alive The sad bit is that I am not able to conceive naturally in my future but I am blessed with 2 beautiful boys so I am thankful for that Unfortunately my situation has arisen from medical neglect as I had a coil fitted in December and I have contacted the clinic 6-10 times during Jan and Feb about immense pain and bleeding but the fobbed me off. A scan I had said I had 1 cyst on my ovary.....this was in fact early pregnancy. Then I had coil removed 3 days before it ruptured and still the consultant failed to investigate my pain and bleeding despite him commenting that i was bleeding very heavy So its all been a very tough time but I am on the mend and I am determined to lose this weight when I am better!!

    I am being careful what I am eating so I have not given up but I am not being strict. My weight is currently up but I think that is more due to swelling and fluid. This morning I was 14st 12lb :0 not as bad as the 15st 6lb I saw a week ago lol

    I hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to getting back on plan and having a good catch up xxx
